Red's Hawt Chibi Pelippers' Description of TRON:

Basically, the setting in TRON is a digital world, constructed by a human called Kevin Flynn. The old movie is set in the first world he created, the new movie (Legacy) is set in another world he created later.

In this world, programs take human shape and live pretty much live humans, although they don't bleed since they are data in a solid shape. Programs pretty much go to work with what they were actually doing as programs in our world - hunting viruses, sorting bank's money, making calculations etc. - and when they are considered useless, they are taken to perform in gladiator like games until they lose = their data gets derezzed.

"Users" are what the humans in the real world are called by the programs. Some programs who were created by a certain human seem to take on the shape of that human and is thus connected to his or her user. Tron, for example, was created by Flynn's colleague and thus looks like that colleague and calls that human his user.

In both the first and second movie, a user got turned into data and was sent into the digital world. There, they seem to possess strange powers that can alter some things/surroundings in the digital world if they know how to use it. It's because users created this world and therefore pretty much are gods. Kevin Flynn does this in both movies.

The digital world in the first movie was very data-like and the sky was dark because an evil program controlled the world until Tron and Kevin set it free, then the sky turned bright. In the second movie, the world was very cyber-like and the sky was always dark and stormy.


Spoiler:
Video quickly summarizing both movies.


A video from TRON: Legacy, showing Disc Wars.


A video from TRON: Legacy, showing Light Cycle Wars.



If you need info, and I highly recommend doing either or both of these, Do this:

Look up everything you need to know on the TRON Wiki:
TRON Wiki

A much better alternative, watch TRON: Legacy. It's a beyond-amazing movie, even if you're new to TRON.

I've reserved pokepokemo.

Also, I've added a section after the RP info for people who haven't seen or heard much of TRON.

I highly reccomend TRON: Legacy though; it will blow your mind.

d4rka8isz is RESERVE.

It looks like 3 of 8 so far (including myself).

If it becomes apparent that this RP isn't quite so popular, we may be able to start with about 5 or 6 characters.

Hey, Zerin can you give me a view of what my SU should roughly look like? I don't wanna write "Laser Beam and Missles" in the weapon part and find out that it's not available.

It means things like swords or knives or boomarangs or guns. Of course, those aren't real things in this RP, but you could gain a TRON-esque weapon with similar characteristics. Red's Hawt Chibi Pelippers says that he can describe it, so I highly recommend you ask him to summarize for you, since I can't really summarize in a way without making you read an hours of text.

So can we invent a TRON-esque weapon with qualities similar to a weapon we want?

Equipment is your weapon or tool preference. If your character in the real world liked to use guns, or swords, or something along those lines, put them in. The point of that line is so that once your data is analyzed you might receive a weapon or tool to fit your needs.

Held items means any items your character has at the beginning of this RP. Since you know little about the world, you probably have nothing.

As for specialties, it means your talents. Is your character a good climber, or just very strong and/or muscular? Or is your character a very good aim with a gun, or an expert ju jitsu fighter? It's your character's talents.

You name your weapon or tool you're good with an you'll be supplied with an item that fits your expertise. These weapons will have the feel of TRON, so you could also pick an identity disc for a weapon or one of those light staves, or maybe something like Castor's cane that shot lasers. Something along those lines, but if you pick real world things, you will receive a suitable item near the beginning of the RP.


Those things aside, make sure your character has flaws too. No Mary Sues or Gary Stus in this RP, thanks.

Okay guys... It's been a week now, and only you two have signed up. The way this looks, I'm going to have to close the RP down. Which is something I really don't want to do, but it looks like this just isn't going to take off.

That sucks. Well, I guess there's no point in an RP with only this many people. If only some people would be less cautious...
